Nick Platt is a British lawyer working in Moscow in the early 2000s - a place where the cascade of oil money, the tightening grip of the government, the jostling of the oligarchs, and the loosening of Soviet social mores have led to a culture where corruption, decadence, violence, and betrayal define everyday life. Nick doesn't ask too many questions about the shady deals he works on - he's too busy enjoying the exotic, surreally sinful nightlife Moscow has to offer. One day in the subway, he rescues two willowy sisters, Masha and Katya, from a would-be purse snatcher. Soon Nick, the seductive Masha, and long-limbed Katya are cruising the seamy glamour spots of the city. Nick begins to feel something for Masha that he is pleased to think is love. Then the sisters ask Nick to help their aged aunt, Tatiana, find a new apartment.

    " A convincing tale of lust and deception in modern Russia. "

    " Nearly always downbeat and sad but Well-written and in many places, very funny. Interesting as a travelogue of early Putin-era Moscow. Biggest issue that I have with this is that our narrator never once seems to question bad things that he knows are going on around him, despite having all kinds of misgivings about peoples motives and histories. Framed as a story being told to a fiance, it makes the future groom appear kind of stupid and amoral (which the narrator admits is understandable). We are supposed to believe that his love for a Russian girl somehow convinced him to ignore all the warning signs but nowhere in the book does it provide more than a glancing foundation for this setup. Still, I was entertained. "

    " Interesting characters and relationships, and evocative descriptions of Moscow, but more twists and turns would have made the plot more interesting. "

    " This book slightly held me at arm's length, but I think it was intended to. Moscow is stunningly evoked. A bleak eye-opener on the corruption that drives post-soviet Russia, and how corruption corrupts. The narrator is making full confession to his English fiancee. Would you marry him? "
